this morning. president obama, we learned, will travel to boston tomorrow. he will attend an interfaith service for the victims of the bombings and their families. for more on the president's plans and his visit to massachusetts, let's go to white house and our white house correspondent brianna keilar. good morning. >> reporter: president obama, we learned yesterday, will travel to boston tomorrow for this interfaith memorial service dedicated to those who were injured or killed in the boston bombings. this will be at the cathedral of the holy cross in boston. president obama, no doubt, preparing for what will be an emotional event. he will be striking a tone as consoler and chief, something we have seen at the white house. we heard him yesterday talking about the people who ran the marathon in boston, after the bombings still went to hospitals to give blood. he will talk about this tragedy and also talk about how this sort of has brought out the best of some of the folks in boston. he is also the commander in chief, that means the investigation of the boston bombings stops with him. he address
in the room. president obama didn't use the word terrorism. became a little bit of a political football. but bottom line, forget about left versus right what are the practicalities about what language you use and how it may hinder or help going forward? >> what the president did not want to do is panic people before information was in. so that was a smart move not to use the "t" word, terrorism. but he also doesn't want to give a future defense attorney the ability to say, oh, well there wasn't a political motive with this guy. he was just some random -- >> political motive key to a finding of terrorism. >> so it's a nonstory. i don't know why people are raising it. everyone knows this was an act of terror. we should drop that. there's no brownie points to be gained at this stage. let's let the investigators figure out who did this and the response and life goes on. this seems to me just to be a very silly issue. >> don't handcuff yourself before you know what you're dealing with. >> exactly. we have no idea right now. >> all right, julia, thank you very much. >> up next we're going to
closer together in one way. russia's president vladimir putin has phoned barack obama to offer condolences and to pledge and commit to greater support, greater coordination in dealing with the threat of international terrorism. this is something that russia has been pushing for, arguing for, for a long time now, and the u.s. president is said to have returned that commitment. john, christine? >> as you said this puts the tensions between russia and check nia into the spotlight. will this have larger implications in that tension? >> this is the important context here. russia has been fighting wars and counter insurgency operations in chechnya and the surrounding region for almost 20 years now, that is becomes increasingly islamists in their intentions and those same militants and terrorists from that region have also launched devastating atacks here in moscow and other parts of russia as well. russia has always argued its efforts to put down these militants should be viewed within the same context as the global war on terrorism but russia has always felt it hasn't got the sympat
. >> how could you? >> how do you recover? >> president obama will be in boston tomorrow to help there. vigils of course going all over, a vigil, last night in boston common not far from the bombing scene. >> that's right. two vigils one was for martin, the 8-year-old. another one that was for everybody who was hurt, who was killed, who was there, who just need to come together and be part of a community in moments like this. understandably they wanted to support each other. in times like this that's what is needed. >> harvard, boston university planning vigils. >> there will be more, i am sure. >>> all right, as the search for clues continues in boston, diane sawyer sat down with one man who knows all too well what it feels look to lead a city under attack. former new york city mayor rudy giuliani said we still don't know how much evidence was caught on camera. >> they have a lot of surveillance cameras in boston. more than new york. less than london. you have very much focused on event with the lives of people. professional cameras, amateur cameras. it may be that some person photogr

complement president obama's request and reflect the undisputable fact that statehood won the november referendum. puerto rico stands in a far different place today than it did six months ago. an historic referendum was held. the president responded to the results and congress now has the responsibility to act. those who seek the equality and progress for puerto rico are on the forward march while those who support the same old status quote are in retreat would drive the debate, while they merely react to the debate. and in the end mindful that the arc of history's long bends the justice, i am confident we will prevail. thank you, mr. speaker. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the chair recognizes the gentlewoman from california, ms. lee, for ive minutes. ms. lee: thank you, mr. speaker. let me first send my thoughts and prayers to the city of boston, families and friends and all those touched by yesterday's horrific tragedy. an incredible strength on full display in the streets of boston when untold numbers of people, the police, firefighters, volunteers, r
at mit. >> and president obama promising the city they would get assistan assistance. athena jones at the white house this morning. what else did we hear from the president? >> reporter: good morning, john and christine. in the days since the bombing in boston we heard words of comfort to the victims and to the city of boston. late last night in a statement he offered words of comfort and he answered questions many of the people following the story have been asking. >> tonight there are still many unanswered questions. among them, why did young men that grew up and studied here as part of our communities and our country resort to such violence? how did they plan and carry out these attacks? did they receive any help? the families of those killed so senselessly deserve answers. the wounded, some of whom now have to learn how to stand and walk and live again deserve answers. >> the president also said the investigation into this continues to try and get some of those answers. he directed the fbi and the department of homeland security to deploy all necessary resources to get to the b
, that was wrong. then president obama comes in and goes to cairo and says let's start new. let's pull out of iraq. we're going to be leaving afghanistan. now what do you think of us? that doesn't seem to be resonating well either. what makes these people happy? >> what moves made them delirious is the fact that we not only started two wars in afghanistan, but we lost both of them. no matter how the american president dresses it up, in the muslim world they have now defeated the superpower. >>brian: we left too early in iraq. we were setting up a democracy in iraq. >> there is no democracy, brian. in fact, you hit on the biggest problem we have and that is mr. obama and mrs. clinton's big thing. the more we push democracy, the more we're waging warped civilizations against islam. as long as a major foreign policy goal is pushing democracy, pushing foreign rights on people who don't want part of them, they're going to fight you. as long as you support the israelis, the arab tyranny in saudi arabia and elsewhere on the peninsula, people are going to fight you. >>brian: if you support their governmen

monday. and that was the united states, president putin, president obama decided to step back and reset, again, the u.s./russian relationship. it had been in a spiral over the adoptions, over human rights, over each country barring visitors, and that was a relationship in trouble. on the day of the marathon, they agreed to, no, we're going to meet and we're going to upgrade relations. i think we're lucky on the timing of this. i expect, as part of a broader warming with u.s./russian relations, that we will get more cooperation, certainly more cooperation than we would have gotten a month ago. >> all right. lou, i want to go back to you and talk about the acting alone part. in the new york area, you know, after 9/11, had lots of experience with this. just looking -- i know you're not investigating this particular case, but judging from the outside, in, do you think these brothers acted alone in do you think there could have been another co-conspirator, so to speak? >> you know, to me, don, circumstances including the travel dictate the likelihood that they received some support, probably
